8 wrestlers who had interesting part-time jobs whilst wrestling
The world of sports entertainment is an incredibly demanding profession, so much so that many a man has quit the industry and never looked back. It requires superstars to be versatile, quick on their feet and constantly entertaining.
It’s for that reason that many a superstar has dabbled in worlds outside of wrestling. Why? Because Vince McMahon’s company trains individuals to be competent on multiple platforms. However, some wrestlers have taken those skillsets and transferred them to other industries whilst simultaneously dominating the ring.
Here are 10 wrestlers who had interesting part-time jobs at the same time.
#8 Mick Foley – Author
Lovable, crazy, hardcore and iconic, these are all words that could be used to describe legend that is Mick Foley. But I’m sure the phrase ‘best-selling author’ doesn’t come to mind, does it? The 4-time WWE Champion took the time to pursue a career in writing whilst still being a wrestler.
After a gruelling day in the ring, Foley would often go home, pick up a pen & pour out his heart onto a piece of paper. Fast forward a decade, and Foley has several published works to his name that include; children books, fiction novels and memoirs. He did all of this whilst wrestling full-time as a main eventer.
